With the NPTE CRASH COURSE, you will gain access to over 80 hours of content related to the NPTE. This includes pre-recorded modules designed to help you crush the NEW lymphatics section and ROCK gait analysis!

Plus, did I mention that the course comes with >1000 pages of written material, an on-demand video library, and access to NPTE experts to get your questions answered. All at a fraction of the cost of other courses!

How the Course Works

In our NPTE CRASH COURSE, we combine the power of a hybrid synchronous/asynchronous model. This means that we have a series of live lectures combined with many hours of on-demand content. As you probably have noticed, most universities are beginning to adopt this model of coursework to more effectively and efficiently deliver content.

In the LIVE coaching sessions, we go over PRACTICE QUESTIONS, case studies, and general content review. We then assign out portions of the workbook and on-demand lectures to review at your own pace. As always, you can reach out with questions you may have along the way!

Thus, we combine the synchronous and asynchronous material to achieve improved outcomes. This also results in a reduced cost, pricing us at LESS THAN HALF what other courses cost with DOUBLE THE CONTENT. We have helped many thousands of students PASS the NPTE (including the instructors of a couple of the other NPTE prep programs) :), and we can help you, too!

“BEST REVIEW OUT THERE!!!! I cannot emphasize enough how amazing this course is! I did the “live” review and it truly was worth every penny! Will and the other instructors taught me how to study and helped with pointing out the highlights of the main topics which needed to be known for the test. On the PEAT I made a 608 and pulled off 713 on my first attempt on the NPTE! Do yourself a huge favor and enroll into this course! You won’t regret it!!!!”

How to Pass the NPTE

Whether you are on your first attempt or your final attempt, PT Final Exam can help you get over this hurdle.

You see, to pass the NPTE, you have to think like the NPTE.

What I mean by this is that those students who are successful on the NPTE are ones who learn the content and then learn how to apply it to novel situations.

In this course, we go over NPTE practice questions, patient case studies, and material review to make sure that you have everything ready for test day.

Need State-Required NPTE Remediation?

We can help! As one of the few approved commercial NPTE prep courses on the market, we can help you fulfill any state required NPTE remediation requirements. The exact details vary by state, so be sure to double check with your state board to make certain you are completing their checklist. Upon completion, we can issue a certificate of participation to assist with your board requirements.

I need this for state required remediation. Can I get a certificate of completion?
Absolutely. With a good-faith effort to participate in the live online course, you can get a certificate of completion upon request.
What is the pass-rate for participants in PT Final Exam Courses?
I’m glad you asked! No other test-prep provider likes to talk about this one. To summarize: Full participators have a >90% pass rate. These students are the ones who honestly work hard to complete the assignments and attend the live classes. This is an amazing pass rate when you consider a few things: Many students who take my review courses do so after 1 failed attempt. You could say that these are high-risk test takers. Many students who take my course are seeking to renew their license after letting it lapse. I’ve had many, many students who are 3,5,10, and even 25 years out of school who take this course and successfully pass the exam. Many of my students are foreign-trained (which has an industry pass rate of 30%) When you take that all together, a pass rate of 90% is awesome! For those who are interested in my global numbers, the pass rate is ~70%. This includes individuals who do not fully participate or who choose not to complete the assignments as indicated. This is still pretty awesome when you consider the number of high-risk students I work with on a daily basis. These numbers I have come from post-exam surveys that I have been giving my students for the past 5 years. This stuff really work! Read the reviews–you’ll love what you see!
What is your average score increase?
Related to the previous question, most students see a score increase of ~50 points from previous attempts. My record holders increased their score >120 points!
Do you record the live sessions for later review? What happens if I miss a live lecture?
No problem! Each session is recorded and posted for your review. Thus, whether you need to miss a live lecture or you just want to review it again, you are covered either way! Most recordings are posted within 48 hours of the live session.

“As I progressed through your course, I was scoring higher on practice exams than I ever had. The sense of community provided by the other students and instructors helped me to rebuild the confidence I once had. I was actually comparing and differentiating the characteristics of pathologies, practicing special tests, and reviewing textbooks unlike past attempts. Everything about the PT Final Exam course worked for me! I improved my score of 597 on my second attempt, to 706 on my third. A 109-point improvement!”
